The Spider-Man star has previously stepped behind the camera to take charge of two short films, 2007's Welcome and 2010's Bastard, and now she is ready to test her moviemaking skills with a full-length release.

Dunst reveals she has a project in development, but she is reluctant to share any further details until everything is in place.

She tells Gotham magazine, "I might be doing that next year.

"We're in the rewrite phase (of the script) and we have an actress. It's almost all together, but I can't fully talk about it yet."
